WHAT IT IS The difference between regular green tea and oolong teas is the additional temperature treatment used to attain a special smoky, complex flavor. Green tea leaves are rolled, curled or twisted – and then are baked or roasted. This Milk Oolong Tea consists just of the temperature-treated tea leaves with no added flavors.
FLAVOR NOTES The smooth, smoky flavor of this Milk Oolong Tea comes from natural oxidation and roasting – which yields a complex taste that many compare to milk or cream. This flavor is what gave the tea its name. PLEASE NOTE: This Milk Oolong Tea does not have any artificial additives or milk products.
BACKGROUND Oolong Tea became popular in ancient China during the Tang Dynasty (618 – 907 A.D.). This special way to treat green tea was devised to fill the gap between green and black tea, combining the health benefits of green tea and taste complexity of black tea.
